Hand, foot and mouth disease with a severe diarrhea and black feces

Hi I was told on monday the 14th that my 7 month old son has hand, foot and mouth disease by a doctor we seen in person, he still has not come up with any blisters on his hand or feet and we were told he would be better by now. He has a fever of average 37.8 and extremely bad diarrhea which has turned to flemy black feces this morning, very wheezy and a slight cough, still occasionally vomiting, anything u can tell me will help thanks

Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If your son is suffering from hand;foot;mouth disease then continue the treatment.As far the black stools you get them tested in a laboratory because the black color of stools is due to blood in stools and the bleeding is from upper gastrointestinal tract.Please consult his doctor for further examination and management.
Thanks
